Survivor 26: Everything's Coming Up Milhouse -- Finale Recap/Analysis
We've spent the last three months complaining about highly questionable casting, lopsided edits, shameless pandering, the lack of respect CBS has demonstrated for its audience, and Jeff Probst's tenuous grasp on his job description. Now that Survivor: Caramoan has officially come to its foregone conclusion, we're back one last time to discuss the finale with the mental inflexibility and unearned sense of entitlement we both so unequivocally enjoy.
Friend of the show John Cochran has not only won the hearts of the jurors, but also several lead actors across NBC's primetime comedy block. How does his march to victory rank in the pantheon of Survivor greats, and what lessons can we learn from his evolution as a player? How does the season as a finished product stack up among the rest? What can we say conclusively now about players like Dawn, Andrea, Brenda, and Malcolm? And what generous compliments do we have for the producers pertaining to the reunion?
Find out when you listen to this episode on the player below, find the direct link here, and find us on iTunes here. Due to jam-packed social calendars, we'll be gone for a bit, but back in June with more Survivor coverage as we try to cope with the fact that the next season doesn't start until September (Blood vs. Water!!!) (*wanking motion*).
